Wow! Karl's podcasts are not only informational but also fun and entertaining. What a creative way to convey what could be on the other hand rather dry information. What a great way for me to stay on top of current trends in children’s ministry. You remind me a great deal of the great Jimmy Nelson and Danny O Day; one of the best Ventriloquist teams ever. Keep 'em coming.
